yes, but how about the costs of living?
Florida's cost of living is rediculously low. Unfortunately the salaries are the same. I live in one of the most expensive areas in the US, and I'm dying to relocate. I'm hoping to be able to take my salary with me.
Florida is awesome. I used to live in Live Oak which is in the middle of nowhere on the Suwannee River. It's a great place if you like to:
Fish, golf, eat seafood, shelling, chill on the beach, get aggrivated at the old folk, hunt, get chased down by wild boar, catch an armadillo, drive on grated roads, deal with high winds, party with the spring breakers, windsurf, kite board, water ski, swim with manatee, swim with sharks/ dolphin, catch alligator, bbq, be eaten to death by skeeters, find points (arrowheads), watch cubans fresh off the boat run through the streets, thong watch in Miami ( a little sth for everyone), visit Disney, party on pleasure island, suck down raw oysters (mniammmm), etc.
You'll have fun :)
